The high-performance capsule shell is made using plant-based hypromellose (HPMC) and water only, without any preservatives. A colorant derived from purple carrots is used to match the desired shade as closely as possible, while maintaining a natural appearance in the finished supplement. Achieving unique visual appeal, the purple carrot color also provides masking capabilities.

This combination creates a powerful one-pill solution, meaning consumers do not need to take multiple pills, Vouche said.
